How can I make my Wordpress blog visible publically on LinkedIn?

Q. Please give a clear step by step guide of how to do it, if you know how.

10 points for fastest correct answer.

(obviously) I have tried to go into settings before and change it, but havent been able to - hence why I am asking this.

Helpful answers only please.

A. It's under your profile settings. Go to edit profile. http://www.
Under Additional Information - click the edit button.

What should I put as my professional headline and industry on LinkedIn?
Q. I'm a college student and I've made a LinkedIn profile. I want to go into the publishing industry when I graduate next year. I work on campus at an unrelated job. Should I have my current job as my professional headline and industry, or should I have what I aspire to be?

A. Definitely put what you aspire to be. It's perfectly OK to market yourself for the industry you want to work in, which includes building an online persona that portrays you as a "member" of that industry. Of course you'll need to do other things to make that online persona credible, like an internship, work-study, or self-publishing activities.

Would you apply to a job twice through different resources such as Craigslist and LinkedIn?
Q. I applied to a Craigslist job post yesterday, and then found the same job on LinkedIn. I wanted to apply through LinkedIn so that the Hiring Manager could see my profile immediately, but I'm afraid that it might be a turn off.

A. No. Only apply for each position ONCE.

If you apply twice you look like:
a) Clueless
b) Submitting so many applications you can't remember to what you applied for
c) Annoying
You don't want to be any of those things. Huge turn-off
